Advocacy

After participating in direct service, teens often begin to ask questions of a systemic nature: How did this problem come about? What is being done about it? What can the government do about it? What can I do about it? How can we help?

The Advocacy Track is designed to help them answer those questions and to take specific actions to address a problem.

Students must first have completed a service track. Then they can move on to TELEM's Advocacy Track and learn to be a public policy advocate.  The Advocacy Track combines lessons about the ins and outs of the legislative process, practical information on how to be an advocate for a cause they care about and texts that delve into the Jewish experience with advocacy throughout history.

The Advocacy curriculum was written in conjunction with the Public Policy Institute.
